Even the most reluctant reader will be drawn into the adventures of Patrick Wigglesworth in this hilarious chapter-book-meets-graphic-novel.
Tricky Times picks up where the first Patrick Wigglesworth’s Bizarre Bible Adventure book, Over My Head, left off. Patrick is now in fifth grade and at a brand new school. He and his best friends are confronted by a new crop of cool kids. These kids have moved up from Silicon Valley, CA, and are threatening to do away with the Gasket way of life. Patrick, wading into politics for the first time, decides to run for student council president in order to thwart the school takeover. Things don’t turn out at all the way he planned in his fifth-grade political career.
The same is true for his Bizarre Bible Adventure (BBA for short) which takes him through the Bible books from Joshua through Job. The newly appointed leader of the Israelites, Joshua, serves as Patrick’s tour guide and shows him that taking the Promised Land is just as messy as Patrick’s life!
Will Patrick’s faith and skill rise to the occasion for success in school politics?
Will he be able to thwart the takeover of the Silicon Valley transplants?
